This portion of the Fitness and Wellness Leadership major establishes an academic standard in the training and education of students in business administration and fitness management. Specific learning topics include accounting, fitness management, finance, economics, marketing/advertising, entrepreneurship, personnel management, customer service, and business administration concepts.
It enables you to develop a knowledge and understanding of the operational and management requirements of modern health and fitness facilities and to help you gain promotion with your future employers.
